I have a picture of a distant relative who apparently worked in the Munich Feldherrnhalle and was seen as a role model for the Nazis because of his athletic ability. My question now is whether it could be that he was a member of the SA? Can you tell from the uniform, the badge or the angle on the arm, or maybe rule it out?

Thank you Andreas 

 

Do you know if the man could be a member of the SA / Sturmabteilung, because of the SA-Wehrsportabzeichen, which he got before 1941. And is the V on his Arm the``Ehrenwinkel für alte Kämpfer``? I also know that he worked in the Feldherrnhalle in Munich. It would e very nice if you could help me. 

 

Kind Regards

Thank you Andreas! I understood that, but could it be possible that he was a member of the SA? He worked in the Feldherrnhalle in Munich and got this SA-Wehrsportabzeichen. Do you know if that could make him a possible member, or do you know how to identify former SA-Member. 

 

Kind Regards
